Being a protégé of a legendary artist like Gloc-9 is a lot of pressure, but teen rapper Shanti Dope made sure that he would not disappoint.
At the age of 16, Shanti Dope's wordplay, narratives and rhymes are more than exceptional. We were even more impressed when he told MYX that he wrote his viral hit "Nadarang" on the spot!
In a MYXclusive interview during his music video launch, he revealed: "Kusa ko na lang s'yang na-e-express 'pag may beat na. Nasusulat ko na lang s'ya ng dire-diretso." Shanti recalled, "Nasulat ko [yung "Nadarang"] nung binigyan ako ng magandang beat ni Kuya [Klumcee]. Na-hook kami hanggang sa natambayan namin s'ya sa studio."
For fans waiting for new music from the young rapper, Shanti Dope promises to write more songs and eventually create a follow-up to his EP Materyal very soon.
Watch the music video for "Nadarang" which has already entered the MYX charts:
